Fort Plain High School students collect tabs for Shriners Hospitals for Children

The Fort Plain branch of the National Honor Society and math teacher Debbie Waner donated 14 cases of aluminum tabs (or approximately 433,000 tabs) on Tuesday, May 22, to Ziyara Shriners of Utica to buy walkers, braces and other medical equipment for children.Tabs

Ziyara Shriners supports Shriners Hospitals for Children, which provides free orthopedic and burn care to children under 18.

“This is my way of giving something back,” said Mrs. Waner. “This helps kids with disabilities to get their walkers and wheelchairs and braces.”

Representatives from Ziyara Shriners came to the school and talked to members of the NHS about what they do.

The students began collecting the tabs – which come off cans - last year, and Mrs. Waner also collected tabs at her house.

“The students were happy to do this,” she added.
